Google Maps Borovets

The first whispers that Google will expand its Street View service to cover Bulgaria were heard as far back as 2010, but the company is now ready to finally begin touring the streets of Bulgarian cities and towns, a report by website dnevnik.bg claimed on February 14.

Google Street View, which offers panoramic views from a particular spot alongside a street, can be used both through Google Maps and Google Earth applications.

It was unclear which cities Google's camera cars will tour first, but the list of destinations included all the major cities - Sofia, Varna and Plovdiv - as well as about 70 towns. The list included all of Bulgaria's major winter (Borovets, Bansko, Pamporovo) and summer resorts (Slunchev Bryag, Zlatni Pyassutsi, Balchik and Sozopol, among others), as well as historical towns like Koprivshtitsa and Melnik.

As is in other countries, Google will blur out faces and licence plates of cars caught on camera. Separately, people will have the option to ask Google to blur out photos of their property if they so desire.

The report did not specify an expected date for when street views of Bulgarian cities and towns would be available, given that it will take several months to process the photos and string them together.
